Berkeley police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run incident that occurred early Monday morning on the University Avenue overpass above Interstate Highway 80, a police spokeswoman said.

An officer was patrolling west Berkeley when he discovered a man in the westbound lanes on the overpass at 5:10 a.m., Officer Jennifer Coats said.

Berkeley Fire Department personnel responded and pronounced the man dead at the scene, she said.

A preliminary investigation indicated that a vehicle had struck him, Coats said. There are no sidewalks on the overpass.

The overpass was initially shut down after the body was discovered, but eastbound lanes soon reopened, followed by westbound lanes at about 10:45 a.m., Coats said.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call police at (510) 981-5980 or at (510) 981-5900.
